I'm there on a regular basis trying to determine the source of where they
came from, and I call the actual numbers and harass as much information as
possible out of them, but what they give me is usually BS. One jerk this
morning, when I asked where he was located, tried to tell me he was in
Cancun, I said "really, this number goes all the way to Mexico?", and he
insisted yes, even made up an address for me....last I looked,
travelcomm.net was in Orlando.

Well I'm not going to be going to court on behalf of my company, but some
practical solutions as to how to block them would be good. The phone
company can put a block on to prevent 'private' faxes who have blocked out
their identifying fax no, but I don't want to inadvertenly block a client or
someone we do business with who has their fax set up wrong.
